LANGUAGE ARTS – “Reading Syllable Types Bundle Packet”

by Amanda Trump
Grades K-3


This bundle contains six units that give specific word examples of each syllable word type. The six syllable types of reading are Closed, V-C-e, Open, r-Controlled, Vowel Digraph & Diphthong, and Final Stable. Each unit provides a plethora of word lists that target each syllable type. Teaching reading by syllable types provides students with a clear-cut understanding of the English language. The basic overall purpose of learning syllable type reading is to give students 6 reading strategies to aid them in chunking longer words into short, readable parts.

Christmas Mosaic Craftivity



Do you need a cute Christmas holiday activity for your kids?  Check out this mosaic art project!  Students tear small pieces of construction paper apart and them down to the holiday picture.  When they are finished, the project looks like a mosaic.

You can find these mosaics here!

Here is an example from one of my 5th graders!  There are a total of 14 different pictures to choose from.

These lights would be cute strung along in the hallway to actually look like Christmas lights.
